Hi
I have been fighting the last few weeks with pain in my right ear which allegedly came from too much noise int that ear.
After a couple of weeks my left ear suddenly got very soar, suddenly like a stitching pain when I spoke on the phone (like I´ve done with that ear for many years).

Otherwise I have not had any loud sounds into that ear. At the same time the right ear seems to be better now and less sensitive.

Has any of you with diagnosed hyperacusis had the same experience? (I´m still trying to figure out what my problem is)

The best
Hjolli.

Are you completely avoiding sounds? That could make your other ear more sensitive. Ears need sound.

What are doing to treat your hyperacusis?

My right ear is extremely sensitive to touch.  If I insert an ear plug it sets off severe pain.  I can't even touch the outer ear with my fingers without setting off a pain attack.  The pain is at the eardrum and in the ear canal--the outer ear--and it is present even in silence.  It can be exacerbated by noise (just the phone ringing near the ear set off a severe two-day attack) or by touch.  I have heard from a number of hyperacusics who have experienced outer ear pain.

Johnloudb, no I am not avoiding everyday sounds and not wearing any earplugs. Exept for last Saturday evening when I was at a party and they cranked up the music. Then I put in my old specially moulded plugs I had made 15 yrs ago when I got my initial sound injury. The are cutting 15 and 25 dB for left and right respectively. (I wonder if I still was exposing my self to too much noise)

I still haven´t found any treatment or for that matter, a final diagnosis whether this is H or something else. But from what you guyes are telling on this board more and more evidence is that this is the (fritghtfull) hyperacusis. But there is still some suspect about some TMJ problems

All I know is that 15 years ago I got something very similar, it was bad pain for several months and then it faded away to an extent that I had almost forgotten all about it.

But as I could have suspected, no one in my little country knows much about this, so I´ll probably have to seek all help from abroad.

Hi Hjolli,
sorry to Hear about the pain your experiencing , if like me, any new pain I blame on my Tinnitus or Hyperacusis. But could it be an ear infection ? Might be worth a trip to Doc, at least to eliminate that possibility .

Best of luck
